A numerical perspective on Hartree−Fock−Bogoliubov theory

Mathieu Lewin, Séverine Paul (2014)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis - Modélisation Mathématique et Analyse Numérique

The method of choice for describing attractive quantum systems is Hartree−Fock−Bogoliubov (HFB) theory. This is a nonlinear model which allows for the description of pairing effects, the main explanation for the superconductivity of certain materials at very low temperature. This paper is the first study of Hartree−Fock−Bogoliubov theory from the point of view of numerical analysis. We start by discussing its proper discretization and then analyze the convergence of the simple fixed point (Roothaan)...

A Two-Particle Quantum System with Zero-Range Interaction

Michele Correggi (2008/2009)

Séminaire Équations aux dérivées partielles

We study a two-particle quantum system given by a test particle interacting in three dimensions with a harmonic oscillator through a zero-range potential. We give a rigorous meaning to the Schrödinger operator associated with the system by applying the theory of quadratic forms and defining suitable families of self-adjoint operators. Finally we fully characterize the spectral properties of such operators.
